E-mobility Concept implementation in the function of sustainable Tourism development managing
Planning as sustainable mobility function requires new approaches and new planning concepts that encourage the transition to cleaner and more sustainable transport modes such as walking, cycling, public transport, new patterns of car use and ownership, and the adoption and use of new technologies as indispensable support for sustainable mobility development. This approach aims to satisfy the mobility needs with a healthier environment and a better quality of life, since healthy and ecologically clean environments are becoming more attractive, both for the local population and for tourists, which can be especially important for those local communities with special tourist potential and developed tourist offer. Given the fact that electric mobility contributes significantly to the climate change mitigation through the reduction of pollutant emissions using different types of electric vehicles, it is necessary to consider the possibility of using e-mobility in order to strengthen the offer of tourist destinations while simultaneously protecting these areas from excessive noise, pollution, usurpation and deterioration of the quality and appearance of tourist areas. Considering that the city of East Sarajevo, as one of the tourist attractive local communities in terms of the diversity of the tourist offer with a scattered concentration of tourist destinations on predominantly hilly terrain, this paper will present the concept of introducing a bike-sharing system, an electric bus and an eco-taxi vehicle in the function of tourists transportation system with supporting infrastructure development plan, all based on tourist demand data analysis.
